who want to control, you know, the political class, the ones to believe, like with the obamacare engine of -- no what you need. you mean like a plant, but it is not a good plan. that is part of liberalism, with the liket or not and is not very attractive. there's another side. you go back to the new deal. the idea of social security. you don't want to have the elderly living in destitution. that was a wonderful idea. the problem is this, liberals are stuck in reactionary cycle where they are attached to the institution rather than the idea . when social security was created life expected to come by expectancy was 52. it is not 80. it was never intended t subside the last 17 years of life. therefore it has to be adopted. liberals will not be willing to live with that, and the conservatism of believe in is e that embraces the goals of a decent, humane society that looks after the helpless and the elderly but does it, is not afraid to reform and to do it anyway that is market oriented and rational. lou: you are thinking, it collides with a number of impulses. it is establishment. t

conversation for 2014 and 2016 should be very simple. it's essentially three and a half topics. is obamacare the best we can do, or can we develop a breakout to a genuinely personal health system that uses all the modern capabilities we've got? that's number one, because you can't avoid it. two, is this economy the best we can do, or can we get a breakout to the pioneers of the future liberating us once again to be the most dynamic, full-employment, high-income society in the history of world? three, are we, are we going to continue to steal from our children and grandchildren, or is it time to get to a balanced budget by fundamentally changing the government? and then the other issue which i list as a half issue because it's not relevant right now every day, but it could bite us at any time, and that is is this, is the current policy of weakness, confusion really a very reliable national security policy, or is the world dangerous, and do we need a much more coherent foreign and national security policy? that's not on the front burper right now. unfortunately, the nature of the world as you
